Friday Favorites: My Happy Pens, Swimsuits in January, and SOON!

th (12)


Hey, y’all!  It’s Friday, and we are doing Friday Favorites with my girls, Andrea and Erika.  Post about your favorites and link up!  So fun!

 1.  Sugar Paper

So, I had to find a spiral for the Siesta Scripture Challenge that I am doing, and isn’t this one so fun?!


I found mine at West Elm.  They have so many fun products to choose from! I, also, really love the monogram notecards!

2.  My Happy Pens

And, of course, I am using my Papermate Flair Pens in my new notebook!  I use them for everything from my planner to signing reading logs, and they just make me happy!

3. SOON!

The word on the street is that they are starting on our house “soon”! I have been taking the kids to the lot after school , and they LOVE running around and guessing where their room will be. 🙂

4.  Her imagination


So, it started with Caroline (her American Girl doll) getting dressed in her swimsuit, and then we ended up with a beach party.  I am so thankful for these days with her.  She is my buddy all day, and we have taken full advantage of the years at home together!

And, speaking of Presley…you may have seen on Instagram that we are starting her in cheerleading on Monday.  Oh my gosh, I can’t wait to see how this goes!!

5.  Pajamas–

This week had caught up with us by Thursday afternoon in carpool!  Presley had ditched her shoes, I’d taken off my scarf, and the day’s makeup was GONE!  We were in PJs exactly 45 seconds after getting home.   A good but busy week!


We have a full day scheduled on Saturday and church on Sunday, but mama is going to be back in her PJs by Sunday afternoon!!  Yay for the weekend!!

Don’t forget to link-up!  We’d love to have you! XOXO N



  1. YAY for PJ’s on in the afternoon. I pretty much did the same all week…the first week back is rough! Good luck with the build. Prayers for a smooth year ahead with all that. Love Presley rockin’ the blanket scarf! Have a great weekend!!


  2. I’m a big fan of those pens too!! So fun that your kiddos are so into the building process! And…I completely agree on pajamas all weekend!! 🙂


  3. I need to get those pens ASAP! So, on Wednesday after you posted the pic of the kids on the lot on ig, Chris and I drove back and matched your picture to your lot! Now I know where y’all are. Sooooo excited we are going to be neighbors. The boys are going to LOVE it (and so am I)! 🙂


  4. Love them ALL. Congrats on the house !!! Imagination is a very special thing, I love my sons : ) I’m going to remember the phase “magic pen” don’t we all have them 🙂


  5. Those pen use to be my go to pens until I discovered the Pentel R.S.V.P. pens. They come in eight different colors and they don’t dry out. Target and Office Depot sell them. Try them, you won’t be disappointed. 🙂


    • Rebecca!! You have piqued my interest! A pen that is better than my beloved happy pens! I will check them out for sure! Thanks for the tip!!


      • Pentel also makes a RSVP ~RT pen, but I don’t like it as much as the removable cap pens. My sweet husband bought me the wrong ones by mistake.


I love to hear from you! Leave a comment here! :) XO Narci
